Skoda has launched an all-new trim level called SE Plus across its entire multi-award winning model range.  Offering even greater value for money and choice for customers, it sits between SE and range-topping Elegance models, and offers customers savings of up to £1,310.

It’s offered on a wide range of Škoda’s fuel-efficient petrol and diesel engines, including two new engines available exclusively on SE Plus trim.  The new 1.8 TSI 152PS engine will be available on Yeti, Octavia and Superb and the new 2.0 TDI CR 110PS engine will be available on Octavia.

Chris Horrell, Škoda UK’s Product Marketing Manager, commented: “SE Plus offers lots of extra equipment beyond SE trim at a considerably reduced cost to the customer. We’ve tailored the offering on each model to reflect the features that are most desirable.  SE Plus isn’t a special edition, but a completely new trim level that will run until the end of each vehicle’s life-cycle.”

He continued:” Features such as Bluetooth, a multi-function steering wheel and Škoda’s Amundsen touch-screen sat-nav system on the Octavia, Superb and Yeti will boost the appeal of SE Plus for both retail and corporate buyers.”
